Anyone know where I can find the number 1 Ford GT40 MkII Le Mans 1966 Miles/Hulme? Either IXO or SPARK.

Thanks, John

I think the SST might be resin, not diecast, if that makes a difference.

Phew, my long-awaited Mazda RX-7 254i, car #82, Le Mans 1982 finally arrived from Australia (sender messed up on the customs declaration and it went back to him first). So, it's official, I am only still in need of the three cars listed below to have the complete set that's currently available.

Any help / hints / leads are greatly appreciated.

Happy New Year all and happy collecting.

There's another 1974 Mazda RX-3 on eBay right now.

I snagged the 1975 Mazda RX-3 (the first Mazda to participate at Le Mans) but it's stuck in the post in Austria with no current way out.
I also just snagged the 1970 Chevron B-16 (the first Mazda-powered car to participate at Le Mans) on sheer luck just now.

All I need then is the 1980 Mazda RX-7 (the first Mazda to finish at Le Mans) to complete the full set of all Mazdas / Mazda-powered cars to run at Le Mans 1970-2009, excepting the two Kudzus from 1996 and 1997 as they don't currently exist as complete cars and I can't locate the long-ago kit versions.

Any leads are welcome!!!

I've just seen that the Chevron-Mazda is is being re-launched as part of the Japanese part works series. Did you get the orginal, or the part works? This new series seems to be creating a bot of confusion for collectors.

I ended up going for a new one...it's in the mail and we'll see what it's like. Same line as the 1994 Le Mans Mazda RX-7, and that one is well done.

Ah yeah. The one on eBay. I was bidding too. $300? That's a bit much for a Bizarre model! :?
